The biggest game of the 2015 Eagles season was in Philadelphia on Monday Night Football against the New York Giants, a battle for first place in the NFC East Division. A loss could have meant the basic end to the season, but a win puts the Birds in a tie for first. Your Philadelphia Eagles beat the Giants 27-7 after initially being down 7-0 in the first quarter.
The Eagles Defense was unbelievable in their dominance of the Giants after giving up an 80-yard drive and touchdown. The Giants second drive was looking the same until DeMeco Ryans intercepted the ball. The Eagles Offense put together a drive and tied it up. From that point forward, the Eagles either kept the Giants Offense in check, or completely dominated them.
Overall it was an ugly game, with the Eagles turning the ball over four times, and the Eagles Defense getting three turnovers from the Giants (with a pick-six in there from Nolan Carroll), and there were countless penalties on both sides. Three of the Eagles turnovers came from Sam Bradford interceptions. His inconsistent play (also having 280 yards passing and a touchdown) has been a reason for anxiety among many fans, some of which are calling for his benching. But is Mark Sanchez the answer? Highly doubtful, and it’s one of the things we talk about in this episode.
But right now, the Eagles are leading the division, and go to Carolina to play the undefeated Panthers, which will be yet another huge test of what this team is.
